We are seeking boys and girls born in 2007 and 2008 to join our Academy program. For players born in 2009, we will continue our partner program in the spring - the "Black Stars", which gives younger rec players some advanced training and a game or two with regional opponents.

The cost for spring season is $135. A $25 deposit is due at the evaluation session. Parents should email the Academy Director to RSVP for the evaluation session. For more information, see our Academy page.
